These look great for my table. The "fragrant root" is something similar to sandalwood...but not exactly and stronger when you first open the package. After a few days, you don't really even smell them. The "roots" are woven into the fiber and look very nice. In the right setting this is very dramatic, but not overpowering like solid black.
Although these placemats are not for a typical everyday table setting, they are an eye popping accent for any special occasion! The quality is exceptional, featuring a stable tight weave with flashes of gold metallic, and yet, still maintains a soft touch. I bought them with the holidays in mind, and now I can't wait to use them for dinner guests! I wanted them to add some sparkle to my black sponge glass dinner plates and together they shine! You can't go wrong with these awesome placemats that come in a variety of colors. I would recommend them to friends and family and would be proud to give them as a gift.
Ordered these as a gift, liked them so well I had to order more for myself. Cannot beat 12 in a pack, and they are heavier weight than expected, almost as if there are 2 sewn together. I purchased the black mats and also the table cloth in the beige. Love the look.
